We visited Craig Scoffone's web site primarily to see his landscape work, but more of that in a moment. Craig practises in several photographic disciplines, and we first visited his 'Product Photography Portfolio '. The juxtaposition of apples, pears, onions and bottled, fermented grapes delighted our sense of the whimsical.

Realizing, as a former sensei of ours liked to say, that we were not there to enjoy ourselves, we repaired to the 'Fine-Art Landscape Gallery' to undertake the serious purpose of our visit. We had been intrigued by Craig's description of these images as being available for 'personal or corporate collections of stunning wall decor'. Each of the twenty one images on offer do have an amount of abstraction to them. Perhaps having figurative tastes ourselves, we are unaccustomed to thinking of photographs as 'decor', but we can see that as a valid function.

While anyone purchasing for themselves might reasonably be expected to pay due attention to their pictures, we can only hope that those who stroll the corridors of corporate power will pay attention. At the time of writing, suitably mounted and framed Cibachrome 20x24 inch prints are available at $675.00 per title, plus applicable shipping & tax. The page says 'Print editions are 25 deep per title', which is an expression we had not heard until now. We took it to mean all prints are in limited editions of twenty five, though no mention of numbering is made.

You may also like to check out Craig's 'Commercial Headshots' and 'Fashion and Glamour' galleries. The curious will probably discover for themselves that all the resources mentioned are hosted on a server that is also used to host Craig's 'Fine-Art Erotic Photography' web site: entry to this is restricted by password.
